Gift that went bust!
Bought these for my brother last Christmas. Since they are sunglasses, he did not actually use them until early spring. Only then did he discover that that video recording worked but the audio did not. He has tried everything to no avail. How embarrassed am I? Would never recommend giving these as a gift. Not good.
Fun but difficult
I waited to write this review because I really wanted to use this product first. It has always worked and I have never had any functionality problems with the glasses. They are comfortable to wear and look good. The negative is that the video is takes is difficult to watch because of the quality and the shaking that occurs naturally with head movement. However, the biggest negative is that is it extremely difficult to operate the glasses. The "Push for on, push quickly to record, push again to stop recording, watch for blue blinking light (that you can't see in the sun)" Small switches would have been a lot easier. I don't think it was worth the price.
How else could I have gotten recorded evidence of my zipline canopy tour through a dense jungle in Costa Rica? What's a canopy tour? You wear secure harnesses the tour operator attaches to a steel cable connected from one platform to another -high in the mountain tree tops. We traversed 13 platforms. Before our trip I purchased an inexpensive eyeglass cord so I wouldn't lose them while zooming along. The ability to slip the sunglass lenses out of the frame was a big plus since the lighting was subdued amongst the trees.
Since it was my first time using them, I forgot the video would follow every movement of my head. I didn't realize I tend to nod up and down when answering yes to someone. It takes a little getting used to the fact the recording will be slightly higher than your line of sight since the camera lens is in the bridge piece of the glasses.
On the negative side, the only way to charge them is via a turned on computer’s USB port. That meant I had to take my laptop computer on vacation which I hadn't intended to do. Also, figuring out if recording is in process without taking them off your face is a problem. I was able to eventually edit out those portions of recording but had a good deal of difficulty with downloading the program at first.
Yet any new tech device has a learning curve which takes some getting used to. The video from these glasses is really cool!
These are great to have. Especially if you have someone thats camera shy or any children in the family that stop doing anything cute when you pull that camera out. Lol. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a great way to hide a camera.
A good start
I bought this for my husband who is an avid hunter. He is satisfied with them however it would be a hundred times better if it were a higher resolution camera and if you had the option to have clear lens too. So If you are wanting a clear picture farther than 10 feet then keep looking.
didn't work long
Thought these were great, first few times I used them all was good. Now I have video that says I can't move it because it has been edited, which it hasn't and most recently, When I plug into my computer the video does not come on and the glasses shut off. I have tried to reach tech support, they take a name and number but have not yet called me back. A lot of money for a couple of videos.
Could be great if not for some bugs.
Worked great the first timeI used them now their not working. Won't record when glasses are open only when they are closed will send them back and try to get another pair.
i have so much fun with this . great for everyone they are fun for on the go
I read other reviews and was surprised. My son in the service and he loves being able to be active and being able to video tape. He travels to areas that I will never get to enjoy and now I get to enjoy them with him. I disagree about quality I found for the price I expected less and was shocked at how well they recorded. I am ordering another one for myself.
My Husband Loves His Eagle-I
Bought this for my husband for Christmas and he just loves them. He loves to bike ride and do various trails and these were perfect for him to use while doing so. He was so excited when he opened them and coudn't wait to show all his friends/relatives - lol. The video quality was good and they are easy to use - not to mention he loved the style and is very picky about his sunglasses. I would recommend these to anyone looking to record video while being hands free.
